On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm X100 (174 comments in total)

What a love it is, had many cameras in between but they all gone not so the X100
May be it's because she is not perfect but when she delivers her love your heart pumps harder. Sticky appenture blade? never had that problem but in the end just when I bought her a new coat as her old one had become shabby I did an unforgettable mistake she can't swim and I placed her on the bed with a water bottle and the story end here.....
Wait not quite I haven given up on her just yet, Fujifilm Australia is my last hope that this marriage counselling will end with a happy end.... to be continued, I sent it off yesterday and said I'm willing to pay for the counselling but not at any price as there are other girls out there (psssst don't tell her, I want her back). :-) Now I have a look what all the fuzz about that new girl is ;-)

Its like a child pretends to be Van Gogh, I feel sorry for the Germans :-) reminds me of the time when artists placed a turd in the corner of a room and called it art. It is not the framing I question its the tool and the way it is applied.
But hey everyone to its own ;-)

Shunda77: Because pictures of girls menstruating are just so progressive?

"the future of art is depravity"

The future is bleak.

what is your problem, it shows that this young people have not even money to pay for the essential things of life in a modern society. We can judge only when we know why this young people live such miserable live. Excellent series well captured and I'm sure its just a fraction what you get to see on missery of the young people.

In reply to:

garyinhere: Why is my Rodeo picture DQ'd? NO animals where hurt at all? It was bull riding, they reuse those animals for life and they are too expensive to hurt... if I posted someone riding a horse would that get kicked too?

Are you illusional or just ignorant to not understand that this is not a natural way for the animal. If anger and fear brought to an animal is not cruelty and don't know what. This includes 99% of all sports involving animals, especially where bets are made. Its not about the animal fun its about fun for humans which don't want to see the truth behind it.

while I like the winner I still think they look staged which was not the intent of this challenge.

On article Fujifilm X100S Real-world Samples (205 comments in total)

The snow shot does it for me, close up was never the big deal with the X100 ether. Would I sell my X100 to get the X100s nope but for sure better in operational sense, Image a tiny bit but not considerable better. Still the best compact camera with the best OOC JEPG "no fuzz PP"
I still look for this all rounder compact with zoom lens 500mm and delivers IQ of a DSLR with 500mm lens :-) one can dream

what a blessed life he has and what a inspiring person to go out and get shooting. Good on him, he managed to make that saying become reality a picture can say more than 1000 words.
